Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composers' House: residencies resume in 2013
[Update 10 January 2012 - information for applicants for 2014 is available here.]
Extensive renovations of the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composers' House in Paddington, Sydney, are finally complete, and applications for new residencies are invited. A significant change to earlier years is the grant of $20,000 that will come on top of the actual residency, to cover living costs, on-costs, travel and administration. For residencies shorter than 12 months, this funding will be provided on a pro rata basis.
Australian composers and songwriters of music in any style can now apply through the Australia Council for the Arts for a residency during the 2013 calendar year. The deadline for applications is 12 November, and decisions will be advised in December.
In her will, composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks - whose centenary will be celebrated on 29 December 2012 - bequeathed her house, a three-bedroom terrace on Ormond St, Paddington, as a residence for composers. Since 1990, the house and residency program has been administered by the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composers' Trust.
